Flashback to nine months earlier, Liv and Will are madly in love as newlyweds. Liv converses with Bonnie at a party, disclosing their bold move to New York. Meanwhile, Liv’s mother, Carryl, remains fixated on Liv’s biological father, despite their divorce. On Christmas Eve, Will receives an urgent work call, momentarily interrupting their festive cheer. Later, Liv’s world shatters when she discovers a message from a woman named Sol on Will’s phone, revealing his affair.

Confrontation ensues, leading to Liv’s devastating decision to throw Will out. Amidst the heartbreak, Liv soldiers through a somber Christmas day. However, Will surprises her with honeymoon tickets, extending an olive branch. Nine months later, we find them on the much-anticipated vacation. Liv subtly hints at her father’s betrayal, drawing parallels to Will’s infidelity.

Fast forward three weeks, Liv accesses Will’s laptop, uncovering the truth of his affair with Cara. Despite the betrayal, she continues to plan their vacation together. Now on the trip, Liv contemplates two unsuccessful attempts to have Will killed. She vows not to end up like her mother, betrayed and discarded. A chilling plan for revenge unfolds. In the episode’s final moments, Liv’s emotions oscillate. She edges towards forgiveness until she overhears Will’s plans to end things with Cara. The episode closes with a charged encounter.

While ‘Wilderness’ borrows from the psychological thriller genre, it occasionally skirts dangerously close to the territory of ‘Gone Girl’. Nevertheless, the episode succeeds in keeping us on the edge of our seats with its flawless pacing and tense atmosphere. The episode’s climax leaves us dangling on the precipice of Liv’s ultimate decision. Will she choose forgiveness or descend further into her dark plan for retribution?
